#82: Jewelry Organizer

Hey, hey, hey!

So it's been almost 4 months since I last posted. That's evidence of how busy I am almost all the time. Over the past few weeks I have successfully allowed myself to not work on the weekend for the first time consistently in 2 years!! And I've been leaving my work computer in my office overnight instead of working until midnight every day! Hooray for me!! I haven't given up on my clothing transformations yet. And with making more free time in my schedule, I want to get back going with my projects. I've got 2 coming at you today, so check back later for my next post!

I've been trying to find a way to re-organize my jewelry. I have a lot of necklaces...

...and have been using a makeshift organizer that ends up with them looking like this:

A tangled mess

Hence, why I want a new way to organize my necklaces.

So I got creative. I found a 3-pack of differently-shaped cork/foam combo boards for $1 at my local 99 Cents Only Store, and chose the heart.

Foam side

I also found a pack of 50 screw-in hooks for $1.

Good deal!

I first made a hole at the top of each arch of the heart and put woden pegs through in order to keep the space open for me to hang it up.

I laid out the spacing of the hooks the way I wanted them, and began screwing them in.

I think the riddler would have this jewelry hanger :)

One side done!

I spaced out the other side more to account for my larger and longer necklaces.

Foam side

I removed the wooden pegs at the top of the heart and fed a zip tie through the hole so I could attach it to a hanger in my closet.

Snip the zips, then ready to go!

And here's how it looks after I hung up my plethora of necklaces:

It's so much easier to hang up and organize my necklaces now that the're on simple hooks in my closet. And the whole thing cost me less than $2!

Thanks for checking out this project. Check back soon for my next one!

Until next time, blessings.
